We don't even want to think about what would have happened if this dad wasn't quite so quick!
Going to a baseball game with your dad is a rite of passage for some kids, but for one young 9 year old boy it will probably go down as one of the most exciting (and possibly scary) days of his life!
Young Landon Cunningham got to celebrate his 9th birthday by attending a Pirates-Braves spring training game with his dad when Pittsburgh outfielder Danny Ortiz lost control of his bat at the plate and sent it hurtling towards the unsuspecting 9 year old!
Thanks to Landon's father and his uber fast reflexes, Landon was left unhurt by the flying bat. Things definitely could have been very scary if Landon's father hadn't reacted so quickly, as we've seen before in tragic bat incidents.
